2018 Marantz "NR-Series"/"SR-Series" AVRs

"OFFICIAL" 2018 Marantz NR1509/NR1609/SR5013/SR6013/SR7013

The Denon + Marantz Group (ie. D+M Group) USA has started to release information on the new 2018 Marantz models starting with the slim line "NR" series models. The "SR" series will be announced later this summer.  The 2017 SR8012 will continue for 2018 as well.

What's new or to be added via firmware update for the 2018 models?

- Able to overlay the Volume, Info, and Option menus on 4k video (including Dolby Vision) while Setup takes up whole page on black background
- RESET - Menu setting that restores all settings to factory default (in addition to usual 2 button + power on reset)
- PHONO input (also added as audio input available with <Video Select> feature)
- Airplay 2 (via future firmware update)
- Web Control (reintroduced after being previously dropped on all "HEOS" module series)
- <Dialog Level> setting more appropriately relabeled as <Center Level> as it simply adjusts the volume level of the center speaker
- <Center Level> (formerly Dialog Level Adjust) and <Subwoofer Level> (formerly Subwoofer Level Adjust) no longer have ON/OFF setting, but rather simply mirror the Center/Subwoofer Manual Setup - Levels - Test Tones settings such that they can be adjusted on the fly now correctly as opposed to being in addition to the Manual Setup settings on previous year's models
- Detachable WiFi/Bluetooth antennas (new for NR1509/NR1609)
- “ihiji Invision” and Domotz Pro remote system management technology ("SR" series)
- eARC (SR6013/SR7013 only - via future firmware update)

What was dropped from the 2017 models?
- Circle indicator on front panel display when "HEOS Music" source is playing
- Smart Select initial volume no longer defaults to an initial value (ie. previously 40 but now must be set by the user)

----------------------

Note: Although all models feature two subwoofer pre-outs, only the SR6013/SR7013 have independent subwoofer volume control of each subwoofer.

Are both the SR6013 and SR7013 rated at 110w?   Or was that a typo?

Typo, (corrected, thanks), as the SR7013 is 125W; however, moot point as there will be no noticeable difference in power between the two.
